The Penn State Agronomy Guide
The Penn State Agronomy Guide is designed as a quick reference for information on crop and soil management, including varieties, nutritional requirements, establishment, and harvesting; storing seed and grain; and farm management and budgeting. Recommendations for managing weed, insect, and disease pests in corn, grain sorghum, soybean, small grains, and forages are provided in Part 2.
This comprehensive guide is revised biennially by Penn State Extension specialists in agronomy, entomology, and plant pathology; U.S. Pasture Laboratory staff; county extension educators; seed, fertilizer, lime, and pesticide industry personnel; and representatives of state agricultural and environmental government agencies.
This new edition features heavily revised weed management recommendations.
